It asks some good questions...
10 September 2006 | by (Memphis) – See all my reviews

I'm currently watching the film right now, and I have to say, it's quite enthralling. I remember that morning so clearly, the past few years just seem to fade away all in a moment. I was 16, and making up the chemistry test that I had missed. Before then, I'd been at my locker, and I overheard my principal whispering to one of the teachers about the plane that had hit the World Trade Center in New York. It didn't dawn on me at first how big a deal this would soon be, or the depth of pain that this even would cause for so very many.

The fact is that this day affected each of us, and if someone wants to show what they feel needed to be addressed about the reasons it was allowed to take place, then I think that it should be allowed to be at least up for consideration. And from what I've seen, there were wrongs on both sides. And one of the big reasons these men pulled this off was our own petty squabbling.

And how often can Hollywood be trusted to produce a wholly accurate portrayal of anything? Exactly.

But this film raises some good questions about how much we could have prevented.
